Eden Project: The World’s Largest Greenhouse

Cornwall, England, on the island nation’s most southwestern edge, is home to the Eden Project and the world’s largest greenhouse.  This amazing collection of bubble-style biodomes house a collection of plants from across the world, from the rain forests to the Mediterranean to the rolling hills of England herself.  From an architectural standpoint, these sustainable greenhouses are massive, powered in part by wind energy and fed in part by rainwater collection systems.  Inside, the flora of the world thrive year-round, where spectators are welcomed to walk the misty paths amidst exotic plant life.  The juxtaposition between the lush climate inside and the cool countryside of Cornwall is quite breathtaking, giving visitors a true escape into beautiful foreign worlds.  [eden project via inhabitat]
